  1. I’m impressed, I haven’t seen workers move that fast in years.
  2. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  3. If it came down to the choice of risking my boat or engine due to not having winterised it, or risking a £200 fine, it wouldn't take me long to make the decision. Providing I took all sensible precautions about keeping away from others and doing all the cleaning etc recommended, my conscience would be clear and would willingly pay the fine and incure the stigma of a criminal conviction.
  4. Maybe put there by someone indulging in a bit of wishful thinking😈
  5. If your gunwales are only 4cms, rather you than me when out cruising - shows a marked lack of forethought when built. How often do you need to fill the tank - once a week, once a fortnight? Hardly an onerous task to run a hose from tap to tank, and as has been pointed out, firstly it is winter with the likelihood of frost, secondly there is the danger of the boat accidentally filling completely with water, and thirdly it is, apparently, illegal.

  7. One thing to remember when turning, particularly when doing a 180, if you give it a burst of power at the same time as turning the wheel, the boat will rotate quicker on a much reduced turning circle - as previously mentioned, you are on a wide river, so ideal to go out and have a good 'play'!
  8. Our live aboard was R&D with the slipper swim/stern. Reversing seemed to be much more 'steerable' but when towing another boat on cross straps the following boat was all over the place, not at all comfortable for any distance. Also, on ours the engine coolant tank was on one of the slipper angled bits rather than on the hull side - seemed to make no difference, it never overheated, not even on the Thames racing gin palaces! You can just see the radiator on the swim in the internal pic. Rest of the steelwork was good quality, but I was never that impressed with the bows - finance constraints stopped me doing anything about that!
  9. If that's Lionheart Cruising Club, they do not accept residential moorers, and unfortunately its small enough they would be noticed!!
  10. If I can add to ^^^^ David Mack - generating electricity efficiently without seriously damaging expensive batteries
  11. Because people like 'LadyG' act like the selfish (deleted) people they are - sod everybody else, I'll be all right
  12. As per the topic title, I’d say Yes - anyway, it’s better to seek forgiveness than ask permission- common sense and care is what needs to be applied
  13. There is a product called 'Wetwall' - https://www.wetwall.net/ Don't know about any of the other similar products, but this one works! If its a weird shape - round, curved, lots of wood joints etc then vinyl is the way to go. I'd avoid tiles at all costs due to vibration and leaking grout - silicone is messy, but at least it 'moves'.
